NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It’s easy to find an excuse for skipping breakfast, often considered the most important meal of the day – busy schedules, early morning meetings and deadlines – we’ve heard them all. Thanks to the new partnership of crunchy belVita Breakfast Biscuits and Dannon® Oikos®* Greek Nonfat Yogurt, a quick and convenient start to your day can now be delicious too. With 12 grams of protein from Dannon Oikos** and the nutritious steady energy from belVita, this delicious pairing helps Americans get more out of morning.
“My guiding philosophy is maximum results in minimum time, and this could not be more important than in the morning,” said Laura Stack, The Productivity Pro. “As someone who’s constantly on-the-go, I’m always on the lookout for quick, convenient breakfast options that help me begin the day on a positive note so I don’t miss a beat. Thanks to this partnership with belVita and Dannon, I know I can take on whatever the day holds.”
Tips for getting the most out of morning:
- The secret to a smooth, sane morning is doing as much as you can the night before. Leave as little preparation as possible until the last minute – you’ll thank yourself in the morning.
- Spend twenty minutes at the end of each day planning your to-do list. When you download the next day’s activities beforehand, you can devote your morning to enjoyment rather than stress.
- Be sure to start your morning with a delicious, balanced breakfast. Together, the nutritious steady energy of belVita and 12 grams of protein in Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt will help you get more out of your morning.
“A balanced breakfast of belVita Breakfast Biscuits, dairy and fruit is a great way to help fuel your morning with the wholesomeness of whole grains and protein, which is why our partnership with Dannon Oikos is a great complement,” said Scott Marcus, Senior Brand Manager, belVita. “Together, belVita and Dannon Oikos nonfat yogurt with a piece of fruit offer one convenient and delicious breakfast addition.”
Crunchy belVita Breakfast Biscuits are available in five flavors - Blueberry, Golden Oat, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, Chocolate and Apple Cinnamon - and are carefully baked to provide nutritious steady energy all morning long. Each individual package of four crunchy belVita Breakfast Biscuits is portioned for breakfast and provides 18-20 grams of whole grains, 3 grams of fiber and 3-4 grams of protein.
“Our commitment to finding innovative ways to help Americans make better food and snack choices shines through in this partnership with belVita,” said Michael Neuwirth, Senior Director of Public Relations, The Dannon Company. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer people a unique option for a breakfast addition thanks to the delicious pairing of Dannon Oikos and belVita Breakfast Biscuits.”
Dannon Oikos nonfat yogurt is made with a traditional Greek straining process that not only provides exceptional taste but also creates a creamy-thick consistency.
